We are not seeing the fall of intellectualism

Isaac Asimov once said: “There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” Despite this being stated so many years ago America has still progressed, people like Elon Musk are launching & landing rockets, working on a plan to get us to Mars, and we are now easily able to use the internet to talk and learn from cultures around the world with very little effort. In turn, this also means that facebook and the internet as a whole have truly become so easy to use even the uneducated masses have a voice and place to loudly display their ignorance. But I still have a positive view that we will continue to progress, that we are not seeing the fall of intellectualism and the world will continue to get better. I don’t think this way because I am an optimist, but because myself and other like-minded individuals will REFUSE TO LET IT HAPPEN! Noli Illegitimi Carborundum
